Mercedes-Benz has announced full details on the 2012 CLS 63 AMG model.
New for the CLS 63 is now AMG's 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine, which replaces the outgoing naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V8.
The new 5.5 liter biturbo unit features a peak output of 410 kW (557 PS/550 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque with the AMG Performance package. The standard engine configuration is rated at 386 kW (525 PS / 521 bhp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
Both units are mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sport transmission.
Fuel economy on the standard CLS 63 AMG now comes in at under 10 liter/100 km (a noteworthy achievement) - with a 9.9 liters per 100 km rating on the European cycle (NEDC).
That represents a remarkable 32 percent improvement in fuel-economy over the predecessor's 6.3 liter unit with an output of 378 kW (514 PS/510 bhp) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. That new fuel-economy rating comes by means of a stop/start system, engine technology such as piezo injectors and an aluminum crankshaft, as well as the use of aluminum panels in the body.
The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is 4.4 seconds for the standard model and 4.3 seconds for the CLS 63 with the AMG Performance package. The standard variant has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The CLS 63 AMG comes with 3 drive modes: 'S' (Sport), 'S+' (Sport plus) and 'M' (Manual) and features AMG Ride Control suspension for a smoother, more exact ride quality with 3 modes of its own: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The 2012 CLS 63 AMG comes standard with high-performance LED headlights, AMG light-alloy wheels in a new triple-spoke design with 255/35R19 and 285/30R19 tires front and rear, respectively.
The AMG Performance package also offers a ceramic high-performance composite braking system, carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trims elements, door sills with illuminated AMG logo, carbon-fiber spoiler lip for the boot and red brake calipers, a seperate set of 19-inch light alloys in a double 5-spoke design and, aside from the aforementioned performance Boost, the package includes a top speed limit bumped up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Prices in Germany for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG start at €115,846.50 including 19 percent VAT. The AMG Performance package rings in at €7735 (VAT included).

Mercedes SLS AMG - "Tunnel"
Record title winner Michael Schumacher test drives the SLS AMG before his
comeback to Formula One - in his own unique way.
2012 Mercedes SLK-Class officially revealed
Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled the 2012 SLK roadster.
The most distinguishing feature of the new SLK, now in its third
generation, is the panoramic roof with Magic Sky Control, whereby the the
transparency of the 'vario-roof' can be changed from light to dark.
The new front face of the SLK, with its more upright grill, references the
SLS AMG as well as being in keeping with Benz's new design paradigm which
is holding to that feature. But the new design still improves on the SLK's
drag co-efficient, though - 0.30 compared to the previous model's 0.32.
The SLK350 model comes fitted with a new 3.5 liter V6 doling out 302 bhp
(225 kW / 306 PS) and powering the SLK to a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) sprint
time of 5.4 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph (250 km/h).
An SLK250 will be launched later in the year with a 1.8 liter unit
producing 201 PS (148 kW). The SLK250 has a respectable 0 to 60 mph sprint
time of 6.5 seconds and also features the same top speed as in the V6.
Mercedes-Benz promises a better ride on the new SLK thanks to firmer
springs and dampers on the suspension and torque vectoring brakes.
New technology on the SLK includes an Airguide windstop system - a new
invention from Mercedes-Benz's clever engineers to help control air flow
and noise in the cabin area when the top is down.
Order books open in Germany on 17 January 2011. The prices including VAT
are as follows:
SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY: 38,675 euros,
SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY: 44,256.10 euros,
SLK 350 BlueEFFICIENCY: 52,300.50 euros.
The 2012 SLK-Class makes its U.S. showroom debut in summer 2011.
All-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class revealed
Mercedes-Benz has officially released photos and details on the upcoming
2012 CLS-Class which will make its debut at the Paris motor show in
In these official photos we now get to see the design of the 2012 CLS-Class
in its entirety. The flared wheel arches along with the broad shoulder
lines and a flattened nose give the CLS a far more muscular look than its
New technology on the CLS-Class includes the LED headlamps, which feature a
total of 71 individual lights. The lights are split into three sections,
with the upper set forming the turn indicator, the middle serving as a low
beam side light which also works when the high beams are on. There are the
headlights themselves which do the night lighting.
Inside is an interior finish done with some human touches. The wrap-around
dash goes from door to door and holds the instrument panel and display
screen. There are also matte galvanized vents and an analogue clock. The
handcraft is featured in the stitched seat covers as well as in the
dashboard and Mercedes-Benz has gone through the trouble of preshrinking
the leather it uses on the CLS so it won't tighten up in the heat.
High-gloss wood panels are also embedded inside the cabin - on the dash,
center console and door linings. Buyers have a choice of brown burl walnut
or black ash.
What Mercedes-Benz hasn't yet announced is which power plants will make it
under the bonnet of the CLS. But we can expect the usual suspects - a 250
CDI with 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp), a 350 CDI with 265 PS (195 kW / 261 hp),
a 3.5-liter V6 with 306 PS (225 kW / 301 hp) and a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 with 435 PS (320 kW / 429 hp).
Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic all-wheel drive system will likely be made available
on most of the torque-ier models.
We can expect those engine details to be made public once the 2012
CLS-Class debuts at the Paris motor show which runs October 2 - 17, 2010.

Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG
Mercedes-Benz S 550 / S 500
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222)
for three days in the surrounds of Bielefeld and Dortmund. Here is our In
Depth Review of the strongest Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2014 Mercedes-Benz S
65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65
AMG (V222), we hope you will like our video review as well. Make sure you
dont miss the Start Up and the Exhaust
intro about the car
With the introduction of the W140 in 1991 in Geneva, Mercedes introduced a
12 cylinder engine in a S-Class for the first time, reacting to BMW effort
with the 7 series top modell. In 2004 Mercedes introduced the first S65 AMG
(after they already offered a AMG powered V12 in the S55 AMG). Last year I
was able to be part of the world premiere of the new S-Class, now be called
222 series and the debut of the all new S 65 AMG which had its debut at the
LA auto show 2013.
Let me get the facts out of the way first. The S65 AMG has a fine 6 Liter
V12 engine (for those Mercedes freaks - its the M279) that comes with 630
hp. Between 2.300-4.300 rpm it gives you a maximum torque of 1.000 Nm -
equals 738 foot pound of torque. All this power goes right to the rear.
Even though the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG weights 2250 kg (which equals 4960
pound), it accelarates from 0 to 100 km/h or even from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3
seconds. The topspeed is reached at 250 km/h / 155 mph - unless you spend
some extra bucks on the AMG drivers package - doing that your speed rush
will not end before reaching the 300 km/h, or 186 mph.
Ok, you can close your mouth and dream on. At least in Germany, you need at
least 232.050 Euros or 222.000 U$ to buy a S65 AMG. But then you have a
whole bunch of premium options included that you pay for extra on the
regular s-class for instance the AIR-BALANCE package, the Burmester High
End 3D-Surround Soundsystem with the COMAND Online infotainment-System, the
LED Intelligent Light System, Park-Assist package, MAGIC VISION CONTROL,
SPLITVIEW, the seat package with the massage functions and the panoramic
Mercedes builds an 80 Liter (21 gallons) tank in the S65 AMG and says you
can get a milage of 19.8 mpg (equals 11.9 liters for 100 kilometers). So in
theory at least, you should be able to drive a distance of 600 km / 373
miles without getting gas. Honestly, I even believe it is possible, but
then ... who would buy this car to drive it all slow and carefully instead
of just making the V12 roar. Yeah right, and not disable the ECO-Start
Just to rund up those numbers and figures - the S65 AMG only comes as the
long version called V222 (the short version is the W222) and it is 5.29m
long (17 feet 5 inch), 2.13m wide (7 feet) including the mirrors and its
height is 1.5m (5 feet). It has a turn radius of 12.3m (40 feet 5 inch).
Overall you are allowed to store up to 500 kg (1102 pound) in the car.
2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC
Coupe (C217)for two days in the surroundings of Pisa and Florence in Italy.
Here is our In Depth Review of the newest Mercedes-Benz S-Class creation,
the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the
2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) , we hope you will like our
video review as well. Make sure you don't miss the Start Up and the Exhaust sound.
The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG
model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model's design.
Dominance and sensual purity combine to lend the vehicle irresistible
presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the
combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction
and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the
BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance.
Boasting an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG
Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel
consumption. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available
as an option. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting
function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further
enhance both driving pleasure and comfort.

As with the transmission, customers also get a choice when it comes to the
AMG sports suspension: the rear-wheel-drive S 63 AMG Coupé is equipped
with MAGIC BODY CONTROL, while the all-wheel-drive version of the two-door
model features the full air-suspension system AIRMATIC with the adaptive
damping system ADS PLUS. Specific front axle kinematics -- including higher
camber, a larger anti-roll bar and a stiffer subframe carrier on the rear
axle -- have been developed exclusively for the S 63 AMG Coupé 4MATIC.
These measures enhance the vehicle's agility when driving dynamically.
